Happy Halloween!!! How about some pumpkin cheesecake with a yummy chocolate spider web on top? Dear husband decorated this cheesecake and took it to work...and I helped by eating the leftover chocolate. Am I not a good wife?
He also got some cute, cute baby pumpkins so I could decorate our dining room table. I have had the Indian corn for many years, I still think it is so pretty.

And Pumpkin-cranberry muffins too! Yum!!
I love Halloween for one thing...all the kiddos who come to the house for treats. I just love seeing the costumes and the precious little ones running around...fun!!
**************************Nursing Notes*************************************
The Gypsy princess:
I had a tiny little lady for my patient, last day I worked at the hospital, young, drop-dead gorgeous with hip length dark hair and lovely brown eyes. She reminded me so much of the beautiful gypsy girls I had read about as a girl. This little gypsy, however, was very sick, on the vent, when she came in her body temp. was 93.0 F. She had been down for a long time. Blood sugar 1200 (normal is 80-120). Diabetes run amok. She is getting better, but she just strikes me so...a darling gypsy in our midst. As she is on the vent, I braided all that lovely hair, so it won't be too big a mess for her when she wakes up. She will be all better soon...

Have a great day,
Julie

Love your table decorations. I think little pumpkins are so cute. The cheesecake and muffins look delicious!

I hope that if I ever end up in the hospital that I have a caring nurse like you!

Oooh, pumpkin cheesecake sounds fabulous. What a clever frosting idea! And for me, that's just the right amount of frosting for any cake. And I ditto Trisha's sentiments about the nursing!

Pumpkin cheesecake sounds pretty good right now. I was touched by your thoughtful act for your patient. Happy Halloween!

Did you make the cheesecake and hubby then decorated it? Anyway, it looked great for the occasion and I bet it tasted wonderful....the little pumpkins are so cute on the runner.

As always, enjoy reading the nursing notes.

I love to decorate for fall and Halloween. Your treats look so yummy. Cheescake is a favorite~your hubby did a great job.

What a sweetheart you are to braid her hair. When I had waist length hair I braided it at night to keep it from getting tangled too.

Yummy!!!! :-)

What wonderful Halloween photos!
You are a very good wife to eat up all that chocolate!
And to top off your post with another treat...the picture in my mind of a nurse braiding a patient's hair was just so loving and gentle, I got teary!

I'm glad the gypsy-like lady will recover. YIKES.....a BS of 1200....I didn't know anyone could survive a level that high!!! NICE cheesecake...I'd have helped you finish the leftovers (good friend that I am....hehehe). Your Halloween table decorations look really cute!

Kristie said...

My prayers are with you and your Gypsy Princess. And I pray that the Lord gives you the strength to keep caring for these dear patients of yours.

Your hubby is very talented! :) Looks great! Love cheesecake!

Colleen said...

That cheesecake looks YUMMY :o) I hope your patient gets better soon. That has to be so hard on the family. I do the transcription end of things and read about the clinical part of medicine, but I don't get to hear the 'human' part, and I like to read your patient posts.

I hope your little Gypsy is ok! Love to herXX

I don't know that I would have let him bring that luscious cheesecake to work. We love pumpkin everything at my house. Looking forward to Thanksgiving - pumpkin pie!

ladydi said...

Your dh did a marvelous job decorating that cake - the spiders are magnificent. I absolutely LOVE the nine patch hour glass quilt a few posts back. It's beautiful.
